Withdraw Steam credits

You can actually use your Steam balance Not again via PayPal or other payment methods do not have them paid back to your bank account. But with a little detour it works as follows:

  1. Offers a friend who wants to buy a Steam game to buy the game with your credit “as a gift”.
  2. Your friend then simply gives you the money for the game and you send the game gift to him in Steam.

So you buy the game for your friend and he gives you the money for it. This is how you reduce your Steam balance and basically convert it back into cash. We are not yet aware of any other method to bring Steam credit back to a bank account.
